Which debian version do have? If you installed from cd then kde is likely to be on the cds. If you did a minimal install then you'll have to apt-get it off the net. It depends on which version of kde you want. I think the standard install for Woody is 2.2

Hi there,

Apt-get is your best friend (i actually like dselect even more). Have you done 'man apt-get' to see it's list of commands?

I don't know if you have "finger slippage" or you are really using atp but certainly atp will give an error since it does not exist. The correct syntax is APT. apt is a basic utitilty in Debian and should be included with the base install.

The tool is apt it has a gui called Synaptic. Its idiot proof as far as this idiot can tell.
